Despite a struggling start, the Jacksonville Jaguars defense has delivered – Bleacher Report

"It has been an unfair series of results for the defense, which has played very well in three of the first four games. The loss to the New England Patriots saw the defense get 51 points dropped on them, but that was against a very strong offense, and it had to deal with extremely conservative play-calling.In the three games outside of the blowout loss to the New England Patriots, the Jaguars defense has performed up to standard and possibly even above the standard. As seen below, the Jaguars can’t really fault their defense in Weeks 1, 2 and 4."

"Though Linder may be the team’s best offensive lineman, the Jaguars feel good about both rookie A.J. Cann and second-year veteran Tyler Shatley at the position. Cann started against the Colts Sunday, playing well in Linder’s place, and he is expected to remain the starter. “He (Linder) obviously is a big part of that offensive line, the mentality he brings and the leadership,” Bradley said. “I thought A.J. did a nice job. There were a few mistakes that are going to happen, but overall, the strength and toughness that we thought he would bring … it showed.” The Colts’ only sack Sunday came from a free-rushing Kendall Langford through Cann’s area."

Jacksonville Jaguars are still committed to Jason Myers – ESPN

"“When we first signed Jason and we made that decision we knew that there was going to be some waves that we were going to have to go through,” Bradley said. “I like his mentality. We’re very confident in him. He had an unfortunate day yesterday.”It was unfortunate in that it cost the Jaguars (1-3) first place in the AFC South. Myers missed a 53-yard field goal wide right with one second remaining in regulation and a 48-yarder wide left in overtime. He certainly wasn’t the only player that made mistakes on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, but his gaffes directly cost the Jaguars the game."
